Hunger Concupiscence, Lust, Spiritual Hunger About this Life Night This Life Night introduces the virtue of chastity to the teenagers and explains how it can help them overcome concupiscence and experience true freedom. The Life Night begins with a meal that everyone experiences differently. This meal illustrates the three responses we can have to our desire for relationships — starvation, junk food, and a banquet. After the meal teens will process their experience and then hear a teaching about chastity and how the virtue allows us to control our desires and have a healthy relationship with God and others. This teaching leads into men’s and women’s-only sessions where teens will discuss the challenges they face to living chastely and ways to avoid sin. Teens will have an opportunity to pray over each other during these sessions, and will close the night as a large group in prayer. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to introduce teens to the virtue of chastity as it stands in opposition to concupiscence. It will challenge teens to recognize their desire for relationships, and to act on that desire in a healthy and chaste way.

Lust is the disordered desire for sexual pleasure, which is sought for selfish reasons outside its unifying and procreative purposes. Chastity is a moral virtue, it blossoms in friendship and leads to spiritual communion. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
